When I was recently in quarantine, I had a few questions about how to connect with others while I was alone. Here is some advice that might be useful for you. First, I must apologize that the quarantine period, in this case, was actually a short one. However, it gave me the opportunity to practice how to connect with others while in quarantine.
Don’t Be Afraid to Reach Out
During the quarantine period, I met a few people and they were wonderful. I was able to discuss their travel plans and even asked about their travel experiences in the past. I had this opportunity in one of the social networks I went to while in quarantine– a group called “The Traveler’s Almanac.” This is a group that allows travelers to share travel information and get advice from each other. Although I have not been a member of this group, I plan to join in order to find ways to connect with others who are going through a similar situation.
Another good thing to do during the quarantine period is to keep in contact with your family and friends. This will help you connect better with them because they might know someone who is also having a difficult time adjusting to their new home or has had other health concerns. You can also look into organizations that can provide you with assistance when you are in quarantine.
Although the quarantine period may be brief, it is plenty of time to experience some loneliness. However, the last thing you want to do is to feel lonely because of this condition. Instead, you should do everything possible to feel like a part of the world again and build your network by talking to others and connecting with people from all over the world.
Hopefully, the quarantine period gave you the opportunity to reconnect with your community and make new friends.
Use More of Social Media
One of the best ways to find people in your local area is through social networks such as Instagram, Facebook, TikTok, and Twitter. TikTok is new and is a fun way to share jokes with your friends and family from a distance. For example, you can make your own TikToc by trying to recreate a trend and make it funnier by using a slowed down video editor.
Once you join one of these social networks, you will be able to connect with others in your area. This can be especially helpful if you are not able to meet up with other people during the quarantine period.
Another great way to reconnect with friends during the quarantine period is to create a blog or online journal. Journaling allows you to keep a diary about your experiences while in quarantine and can also be helpful when you are feeling lonely and need to feel like part of the world again.
You can write about your life as a whole and include what you are experiencing while in quarantine. You can write about the things that are exciting and new, the things that are sad and depressing, and the things that are fun and scary. As you write, you will become more confident about yourself and will be able to communicate better with those who are close to you.
